  • [QUOTE=darthkatzs;29673753]Nodoby's talking about DLL's here? We're talking about plain lua gamemodes.[/QUOTE] Conna does redistribute DLLs he did not make or owns any rights to, he literally takes the DLL, changes a few method names here and there, recompiles it with a different name then claims it as his. his gamemodes have been caught using things like gm_bass, gm_sourcenet etc without the permission to re-sell.

If you're going to start with dll's built on the source engine, then you're starting with something that is way over your head.

  • Without the DLLs his gamemodes don't function. So he is selling DLLs, which he has no right to. So yes, it is illegal.

  • Well, if you've got a really large playerbase, a quite big server (32 slots), and serious and professional intentions with your community. Sure, I would suggest you buy HL2RP. It's a great and interesting gamemode which definitely gives you a unique gaming experience.

  • 150? One hundred and fucking fifty Euros? That costs more than my fucking server did. Don't buy it.

  • [QUOTE=qwertymnbv;29886866]"pirates" = Cheap 7 year olds, who don't take their community seriously. Just saying..[/QUOTE] pirates = people who don't want to pay 20x the cost of the game for a gamemode. Good communities = people who coded their script from scratch instead of buying it like a fucking moron.

  • You don't [b]need[/b] to run Open Aura. If you take your community seriously, just run something else or pay the money for a legit version. I'm just saying that people who use crappy unlegit versions are not taking their communities seriously. If you want to run something else than Open Aura that doesn't cost any money, sure. Why not? But how will your community be any unique and qualitative if you're just one crappy unlegit Open Aura server out of several others?

The only thing being that the cracked ones are both safer, fairer and run on whatever you want most times. Seriously, if Connas auth server goes down (which it does, a lot, usually because he gets attacked), legit users get locked out of a hundred+ pound investment. While the "awful pirate stoopidheads" get away scot free and can enjoy a backdoorless gameplay experience. Stop sucking his dick for the love o god, and wake up. Realize you are being scammed.

  • It's quite obvious this is turning into an argument... Overall, people do not believe that Kuro's gamemodes are worth the price. Some commonly recommended gamemodes you could try instead are: Tiramisu Taco Script Cake-script According to the people who have responded to this thread, the majority believe you should not get HL2RP and that it is not worth the money. Can we be done here?

  • Tiramisu Taco Script Cake-script All of them are less qualitative gamemodes when it comes to true profound roleplay. I promise you, you can't get the same roleplay experience with those gamemodes. Maybe that's why Kuro got 34 customers? Like it or not, but he has worked a lot with his gamemode and it has payed off for him, and most of his customers are satisfied.
  • [QUOTE=qwertymnbv;29952207] I promise you, you can't get the same roleplay experience with those gamemodes.[/QUOTE] Yet one can get the same roleplay experience with the cracked version, it's exactly the same minus the DRM/backdoors and you will be not be losing $300.

  • I have at least 12,000 users of one of my scripts. 34 is nothing.

Oh, and there have been PLENTY of people who have asked for refunds. By the way, they don't have a refund policy.
